Seed potatoes can grow in almost any soil type, but ideally they prefer to be grown in deep, well-drained, loamy soils that are not too heavy. These can be enriched with plenty of organic materials to help retain water and nutrients for your potatoes to grow big and healthy.

Potatoes hate the frost, so a nice site facing south to get plenty of sun is ideal.

Please note that potatoes are also susceptible to a wide range of pests, including slugs and aphids.

If you are planting potatoes every year, they should be planted in a different position each year. This is known as crop rotation. A minimum of 3-4 years should be left before planting again in the same position. This helps reduce diseases among the crop.
